Current flow in float charge.

What charge current should I expect in float mode? I have a 1040ah bank of AGM batteries, and when my solar controllers have switched to float mode, they draw around 8amps. Is this normal?

The solar controllers are in ESS mode, connected to a Multiplus, BMV-712 and Venus GX.

Yeh it's in the ballpark The V is the most important thing though - if it's holding the expected Vfloat then it can push no more.
